KANSAS CITY, KANSAS POLITICO SHOCK!!! WYCO COMMISH ANN BRANDAU-MURGUIA BUSTED FOR DOMESTIC BATTERY!!!
We awake this morning to news of an embattled politico in trouble and in the aftermath of what looks like a sordid bit of weekend drama.
Pitch: Wyandotte County Commissioner Ann Brandau-Murguia arrested on domestic battery charges
"She was booked into the Wyandotte County Detention Center just before 9 p.m. The jail's report lists the charges as "Domestic battery; Knowing or reckless bodily harm to family member."
For quite some time Ms. Brandau-Murguia has been the focus of controversy regarding a development beef that's now on pause.
And we've noticed her out on the town from time to time as well.
More deets are on the way but the mugshot obviously indicates a pretty scintillating story of a local political lady allegedly on the wrong side of the law last night.
UPDATE: THANKS TO OUR AWESOME TKC BLOG COMMUNITY FOR A LINK TO MORE DEETS ON THIS DRAMA!!!
Here's a social media update from the Commish in her own words:
I first want to thank everyone for the kind and supportive texts and emails in regard to the unfortunate news reports last night.
I regret and am embarrassed to have to report that I requested that the police be called last night in regard to a dispute I had with a long time friend. The police on the scene determined that a complaint for Domestic Abuse needed to be filed. This complaint did not involve my husband or my children. A long time friend and I were involved in a misunderstanding that resulted in an argument and physical contact. Since this is a pending matter and there appears to be some differences of opinion as to what happened, I have been told not to discuss what occurred in public. I would ask for my children and family's sake that people respect our privacy as I attempt to address and resolve this unfortunate matter. I would ask that you keep all people who are involved in any type of domestic altercations in your thoughts and prayers.
